Diamonique or Brilliante?

Started 1289770939.663 in Jewelry Talk | Last reply 1301154686.56 by Anniecamp

Does anyone have a preference? I have tried Diamonique and like it how does Brilliante compare?

I think they are both about the same so it would come down to what setting you prefer. Also, bear this in mind: Diamonique comes with a guarantee, Brilliante does not {other than the standard 30 day}. So if you lose a stone somewhere down the road you will have to replace it at your down expense if you go with Brilliante...which may or may not be a problem at all for you.

I feel brilliante is superior to diamonique....especially the belita line. Brilliante is also more weighty than diamonique pieces. I think if you try a brilliante piece you would never buy diamonique again.

Who sells the Brilliante, is that J*T*V?

I think the Brilliante stones are a bit more real looking, but the settings and designs with Brilliante make them far superior.

A couple stones fell out of a ring I had, but I didn't have the sales receipt to prove it came from QVC so they couldn't help me.

There should be no problem for them to look it up in your history. I had a problem with some pots I bought literally YEARS ago and had no problem with the replacement. Obviously I didn't have the purchase slip but they found it in my purchase history within minutes.

ETA that I guess it could be a problem if it were a gift. In that case, it is the gift giver who would have to "make the claim".

Bella Luce on JTV is beautiful, especially the tanzanite colored stones.

It may be hard to say as some of the trademark names are relatively new, at least in the TV sales arena. For this reason comparing the stone mightn't be easy, except on basis of appearance and presentation. Q has sold Diamonique for more than two decades. I know it to be durable, as it resists signs of wear. My first ever piece of jewelry was a princess cut solitaire in a sterling ring (approx. 8 x 8 mm) -- A gift from my Mom. It went with me horseback riding and even as I did barn chores...I hated to take it off. Over the years I built a collection of natural/genuine stones, often preferring them set in white gold. My gift-ring, with an occasional buff (and some respectful storage), is as pretty today as back in the 80's. I have received more comments on it than any within the collection. Other sims that I have include HSN's Absolute and SNBC's Brilliante (also at least one Bella from JTV). In my view, Bella and Diamonique have more sparkle and are intensely clear; that however may come in part from cuts that I chose. At any rate, they sure show off well in pieces which feature larger mm stones. Both of these diamond simulants are believable and stunning (Q's D would easily trump the average white Zircon if it were in the contest Kiss ).

I have several pieces of Brilliante and Diamonique. Both brands are beautiful and hold up well.
